It's been almost two months since the last update to the news reader ThOR, but it's back and, like a few other Symbian classics, appears to be self-updating for the future - no Nokia Store (necessarily) needed. The full changelog is below, along with a few screens.
ThOR is, if you remember, a client for a number of popular news aggregators. The changelog for v1.0.5 (over and above v1.0.4, reported on here) is:
Checks if a new version is available. ThOR will continue to be updated
Thumbnails on articles list
New setting: auto Readability
New setting: auto mark as read articles scrolled out
ScrollToTop button visible when flicking article upwards
Better handling of wide images
Minor bug fixes

Auto Readability is now a setting (this strips out everything that you might not want in terms of original web rendering); (right) display of stories within a feed now has thumbnails for each...
A story displayed with the dark theme, in Readability mode - all very clear and efficient; (right) unread story counts here in The Old Reader (which I don't use much anymore, so the numbers are maxed out!)....
